Volunteer with Aber

What is e-Mentoring?

Aberystwyth eMentoring is funded by the Aber Fund and is an online platform for Aber alumni to offer career mentoring and guidance to current students and young graduates.

Students are paired with alumni mentors who have the experience and knowledge of an industry/profession that will suit the student’s career ambitions.

How much time is involved to volunteer as an e-Mentor?

This could be anything from a one-off email to longer interactions as students and early career graduates plan and navigate their career options. Mentors can offer: 

  • advice via email
  • feedback on CVs and application forms
  • valuable insight into a specific career
  • insight into a mentor’s place of work
  • opportunities for work shadowing/experience
